The water is clear, like my tears.
I look into the lake, thinking about him.
I have planted a thought about him in my mind that says "You would be perfect for him!"
We match, we'd be perfect.
But obviously he doesn't think like I do.

I heard rumors about him liking another girl.
Two weeks later they're dating.
I'm stuck in a love triangle, fighting my best to get out.
But I'm stuck.

My friends told me that they are many other guys out there, just waiting to be picked.
But i can't take my eyes off him, even though it hurts.

Every time I see him, my heart aches.
I can't stop it; it's there no matter where I go.
Even though he knows I like him, I kept trying.

Less than a month later, she breaks up with him.
I wish then that I wouldn't have wasted my time on him, because I now know that he is way different than I expected.

I have no choice but to move on, and find someone else.
That has made me a different person and I think I like this new me.

The author's comments:
He was my first real crush, and my first real disappointment.
